ane before she married William

Pity this is not clearer as it is almost certainly Jane before she married William. Before embarking on his final career as a designer and writer, Morris completed one oil painting, a portrait of his future wife Jane Burden as 'La Belle Iseult' (Tate Gallery, London), and began another, also on the Arthurian theme of Tristram and Iseult.
